LR Global Kids Fund donates 200,000 Euros at RTL Telethon

A great stage for the LR Global Kids Fund and the Ahlen “Lunch Club” at the RTL telethon on November 23: During the live performance on German television, our Chairman and CEO of LR Andreas Friesch handed over a donation of €200,000 to RTL TV presenter Wolfram Kons. Parallel to the live talk of both, a short film of the Lunch Club was shown from the RTL- Kinderhaus inauguration in summer. This was a successful step for the Ahlen facility, which is based on the joint commitment of the LR Global Kids Fund and the “RTL – Wir helfen Kindern e.V.” foundation.

The sensational donation of the LR Global Kids Fund will of course benefit the Ahlen Lunch Club/RTL-Kinderhaus, as well as the two ‘RTL-Kinderhäuser’ facilities in Stuttgart and Leipzig. There are currently 18 ‘RTL-Kinderhäuser’ in Germany where children receive not only a balanced meal but also help with homework and loving care. In addition, they are supported by creative offerings for play and education.

It was our children’s charitable organization’s third appearance at the RTL telethon. The long-term and sustained cooperation with “Stiftung RTL – Wir helfen Kindern e.V.” culminates in an annual donation highlight with this event. Also in this year the LR sales partners, customers and our supporting members have once again committed themselves with much dedication so that we could proudly present this donation sum of €200,000 together with three LR partners.

The three partners and LR CEO Andreas Friesch were also actively involved in the call rooms. Together with celebrities, they received donations from callers from all over Germany. “It is a very emotional moment, when you experience for yourself how many people are wholeheartedly committed to children in need”, says Friesch. The LR partners can only confirm this: every cent counts and goes to help disadvantaged children.
